When I start my chev S10, it starts but after a minute, the engine shuts off. I put in a new alternator and the problem still persists. Do you recommend a new fuel pump?

This truck is fuel injected. I would say by what you are stating that the fuel filter is clogged or you have a bad fuel pressure regulator, or a vacuum leak. If you hear pump going on it is probably not pump but one of things I mentioned. Good luck.

Battery light indicates alternator failure. If you have a voltmeter, check voltage at battery with engine running. Should be at least 14 volts. If no voltmeter, remove alternator and take it to parts store for testing.
If the alternator is bad and that is your only problem, the truck should jump start, but it will not go far unless the battery is charged. OK?

Check the battery cables for corrosion near the battery terminal end. Sometimes it builds up under the rubber insulation. I would check the ground wire that runs from the battery to the engine block.

Chev. S10 starts but stop's immediate when hot

check compression, at that many miles the exhaust seats could be wearing up into head causing valves to stay open longer loosing compression,while the engine is cold oil is thicker ,lifters pump up further do to thick oil when oil thins out you have less lifter pump up thus working working properly check compression cold should be 125 low to 155 any less than 100 you have valve prob.

My volvo wont start either

If you have started your engine and then shut it off within a minute, then the valves will be held open and you will habe no compression. The only way around this is to not do short journeys/start-ups. To fix it if it does happen, charge your battery, the put the accelerator to the floor and crank the engine to free the valves. It will take minutes of cranking but persist and you will get it to go. By flooring the accelerator, you shut fuel off to the engine too.

There is a sensor device, on the right side of the engine block near the front, for the oil pressure that has two parts to it. It is used to control the oil pressure guage on the dash as well as having a switch which has wiring going to the Electronic Control Module, and this ECM input has a software time-out safety feature. After the engine is started, if the indicated oil pressure goes too low or is lost, the voltage to the fuel pump is shut off. This is desired in the case of a crash. This event will cause the engine to quit. On my manual transmission vehicle the ECM will reset if the ignition is turned off for a couple of seconds. It sounds like this oil pressure (aka sending unit) sensor is not working properly, causing the fuel pump power to be removed.....(probably intermittently). About $20 and a few minutes to change if you can get your hands down in there.
